Custer's Last Stand: The Anatomy of an American Myth

by

Custer's Last Stand: The Anatomy of an American Myth Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Defeat and death at the Little Bighorn gave General George Custer and his Seventh Cavalry a kind of immortality. In Custer's Last Stand, Brian W. Dippie investigates the body of legend surrounding that battle on a bloody Sunday in 1876. His survey of the event in poems, novels, paintings, movies, jokes, and other ephemera amounts to a unique reflection on the national character.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 171-201) and index.

About the Author

Brian W. Dippie, a professor of history at the University of Victoria, British Columbia, is a well-known authority on Custer and the author of Catlin and His Contemporaries: The Politics of Patronage (Nebraska).
